Malty Mini Egg Crunch Bars

Malty Mini Egg Crunch
You've given up chocolate for Lent?... then this recipe probably isn't for you - it contains nearly half a kilo of the stuff! But my goodness it is SO GOOD.

There's been quite a lot of Creme Egg love in the blogosphere over the last few weeks, so not wanting Mini Eggs to be forgotten completely, I thought I'd develop this yummy malty mini egg crunch bar. It's got 3 types of chocolate (dark, milk and white), Maltesers, Mini Eggs and digestive biscuits all bound together with copious amounts of butter and syrup. I don't think I need to tell you it is absolutely yum (as well as very naughty) and I'm sure would go down well at a charity bake sale or birthday party tea.

Malty Mini Egg Crunch
The ingredients listed below make 16 squares in a 20x20cm tin but the recipe could easily be doubled if you are catering for a crowd. Once made they are best kept in the fridge until you want them and will last for up to 2 weeks in an air tight container.

 It's a super easy treat to make and a great one for the kids to help with! My lot always enjoy bashing up the biscuits with a rolling pin...and then there's licking out the bowl afterwards. Luckily there are plenty of bowls to lick!

Why don't you have a go this weekend - it might be detrimental to the diet but when it tastes this good who cares?

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
